An angry Wrexham manager sarcastically offers Ryan Reynolds a job
What is it with Wrexham and creating a dramatic climax in the style of Hollywood?
After Ben Foster's last-gasp penalty save on Easter Monday won a potentially season-defining win in the promotion battle, a trip to Barnet wasn't expected to raise blood pressures again.
That lasted 50 minutes. Chances were few because the leaders and hosts did little other than try their hardest. Afternoon's flashpoint.
Only Callum McFadzean, making his first appearance in two months, knows if he purposefully caught Laurie Walker with his trailing right leg after the Barnet goalkeeper caught Paul Mullin's overhead kick.
However, the referee, Ed Duckworth, was of the opinion that he did. The referee drew his red card, and Wrexham were immediately reduced to 10 men on the field.
The initial aim of manager Phil Parkinson, who was watching from the technical area, was to rapidly oversee a reshuffle of the players on the field.
which allowed him to adapt to a 4-3-2 formation, so filling the void created by the departure of his left wing back.
Wrexham's season-opening red card still stung. At the final whistle, Parkinson ran onto the pitch and rushed right for Walker,.
